Monday 20 May 2019 | 14:10 CET | News
Sri Lanka's SLT Group reported a record net profit for Q1 of LKR 2.20 billion after a remarkable 86.8 percent year-on-year growth. The results were largely driven by healthy revenue growth coupled with cost control initiatives. Profits were further backed by LKR 172 million Forex gain reported during the quarter, in contrast to the profits negated by LKR 294 million Forex losses during the same quarter in the year before.
